Preordering gives you early access, but that’s not all. You also get exclusive in-game items like Azeyma’s Earrings and Wind-Up Zidane Minion with an extra 30% boost up to level 90. 


Dawntrail will be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC, and Xbox, allowing players to enjoy the content regardless of their platform. It is also speculated that the expansion will be released simultaneously across all platforms.

Plot and Setting

The mainstream narrative is that Dawntrail is continuing the narrative after Endwalker as it takes players to the New World, specifically the land of Tural. The new setting has introduced a continent divided into northern and southern regions, historically mired in territorial wars. 

The storyline centres around the capital city, Tuliyollal, founded by Gulool Ja Ja, and around a succession crisis in Rural. Familiar NPCs like Krile Mayer Baldesion, Alphinaud, and Alisaie Leveilleur accompany the Warrior of Light. The themes of factional rivalry and political intrigue will be prominent as players work to stabilise the region. 

New Jobs: Viper and Pictomancer

Dawntrail has introduced two exciting new combat jobs: the Viper and the Pictomancer.

Viper is a melee game with gameplay that mainly focuses on maintaining buffs and maximising damage output. It is a DPS class capable of dual-wielding one-handed swords or combining them into a two-handed twin blade. 

Pictomancer is a magical ranged DPS class wielding a paintbrush and palette. Pictomancer brings a unique combat style with summoning magical creatures and painting spells. They also add versatility to their role by providing party buffs. 

Both of these classes will be available to you at level 80, allowing you to tackle the expansion content immediately.
